On March 19, in the midst of the Miami Hurricanes’ Sweet 16 run, team leader and star player Angel Rodriguez tweeted out the following:
The Yankees' superstar was seen at UM's games this year, for those who missed it.
Well upon seeing the tweet, Alex's publicist tweeted out the following:
The meeting finally happened today as Alex's Yankees are in Miami to take on the hometown Marlins tonight. For those who don't think the NYY Version of "Arod" is a cool guy, we beg to differ.
Rodriguez is a huge supporter of The University of Miami, and not just in donations.
Today is just another example that while he may wear pinstripes, he bleeds Orange and Green.
